Date confirmed for Forest cup clash
Written by Dan King
Newcastle's Carabao Cup second round tie at Nottingham Forest will be televised.
The game at the City Ground will be shown live on Sky Sports and as a result, will be played on Wednesday, 29th August (kick-off 7.45pm BST).
The draw was made on Thursday evening, with United drawn against Forest for the second season in a row. The Magpies lost 3-2 after extra time at St. James' Park 12 months ago.
Sky Sports' decision to broadcast the game live means Newcastle's opening four fixtures of the season - including last weekend's home clash with Tottenham - have been selected as live games.
Ticket news will be announced in due course.
